Identity crisis

Richard Eden, junior diarist at the Daily Mail, adds an important detail to the history of Broadcasting House, after a conversation with Alan Yentob, who believes his face should be his security card for entry to the BBC.

He tells me: ‘If you haven’t got your credentials, they go: “Who are you?” and “Who are you here to see?” I’m always tempted to say: “Well, actually, I commissioned the building.”

‘I bite my lip — it happens all the time. The guys on reception don’t watch TV.’

  1. Yentob obviously hasn't tried to leave some important time-sensitive document at a BBC reception for someone to know that these people are not there to help anymore, but to stop people and such things from entering Been premises.
